Had ultrasound for a rash on 1 breast. No lumps but thickening of the skin under the rash inside the breast. What does this mean exactly?

There is no skin: ...inside the breast itself, so I can understand why you're confused. If the rash affects all the layers of the skin, it can cause thickening of the skin under the rash but outside of the breast tissue. If you haven't had a mammogram, you should get one. Altho breast cancer is rate at your age, you may need a biopsy to be sure that the thickening is confined to the skin. Dr. Anne. ...Read more

My skin is peeling from under my breast and looks like a rash I wanted to know what type of ointment to put on or should I seek my doctor?

Rash could be fungus: This could be a fungal or yeast infection in a warm, moist, area of constant skin-skin contact and irritation. Or it could be a simple heat rash or mechanical irritation.

Otherwise, if it doesn't respond to lotrimin (clotrimazole), treat this like heat or diaper rash. Good luck! Dr. Tholen. ...Read more

I originally wore a sticky bra. It gave me an awful rash. I noticed a almost skin color mole type bump on my breast that was itchy also. Is this bad?

I originally wore a sticky bra. It gave me an awful rash. I noticed a almost skin color mole type bump on my breast that was itchy also. Is this bad?

If reacting to bra..: If skin reacts to a sticky bra's adhesive, or to the material in the bra, she can avoid using that brand of bra. For such an itchy rash, sometimes using a few days of over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream will help the irritated skin get back to normal. A mole in that location would itch too, but should also return to normal. Otherwise, one can get a primary doctor's or dermatologist's exam. ...Read more

Is it normal in healing process of fungal infection between breasts, the red itchy rash turns into brown spot? Will it turn into usual skin color?

Is it normal in healing process of fungal infection between breasts, the red itchy rash turns into brown spot? Will it turn into usual skin color?

Generally: With time the skin color may return to normal, but there are instances when, since some of the inflammatory cells take up pigmented damaged tissue, that the area may remain darker than the surrounding area. Ask anyone who has had hematomas (blood collections in tissue), in which the uptake of iron by macrophages results in permanent dark areas. Not in everybody, but some. ...Read more
